Lurking McIlroy enjoying Tournament of Champions

Gary Woodland of the United States walks on the 17th hole during the second round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions at the Plantation Course at Kapalua Golf Club

Day is joined at four under by four-time major victor Rory McIlroy, Bryson DeChambeau and three others.

He holed a 12-foot birdie putt on the toughest pin position at the 18th - front and right - to end the day where he started. "I got some pills and feel a little bit better today but still a little dizzy".

Kevin Tway earned a one-stroke lead after the opening round at the Tournament of Champions as the 2019 PGA Tour season got underway.

But he bounced back with a birdie at the par-5 ninth and, due to 30/km winds at Kapalua's Plantation course keeping scores at bay, he sits at four-under-par and just three shots off the pace.

"I was just trying to hit the green", he told Golf Channel.

Kevin Tway now tops the leaderboard at six under at the first US PGA Tour event of the year, while Leishman is joined in a share of second by Kizzire, former US Open victor Webb Simpson and Andrew Putnam.

In a tweet the company admitted the mistake and said they "look forward to seeing you on board with your ticket issued". Air Canada is now involved in a class action lawsuit at home for refusing to honor a similar price mistake in 2015.

"Nah that was just me; that was just a shit shot", Leishman joked.

After Leishman's drive on 17, the 35-year-old barely advanced his second shot out of the native area and despite a strong third shot failed to get up and down for bogey. And I had that chance to make the bogey, which would have been a great bogey, but double was pretty disappointing.

He took ample advantage of the new rule and birdied three of his final five holes to finish at four under and in a six-way tie for sixth.

"I stayed patient", McIlroy said.

"It's been a nice start to the year", he said.

The American fired a round of seven-under 66 on the opening day in Hawaii to move to the top of the leaderboard with compatriots Gary Woodland, Justin Thomas and Dustin Johnson his closest challengers. You know what clubs you are going to hit off all the tees and how far right or left you are going to have to aim on each hole.
